In the long lasting demand for the construction of a mosque for the religious needs of the Muslim population of Athens, this project stirs the discussion of the adaptability of the Islamic architectural element in the European landscape and especially in the particular Athenian environment. On the border between the incomplete residential area of Votanikos and the declining industrial zone, the urban-planning choice of the Islamic religious complex, offers a rejuvenating gateway for the spread of the adjacent phenomenon of Metaxourgeio even further west. In response to the constantly evolving composition of the Athenian Muslim community, the religious building complex is called upon to take a hostel-like nature on Islam. The basic principle of this option is the worship space compatibility with existing Muslim communities and their range of tradition but also to those that will potentially arise in the future. The architecture of Islam is being dealt with the intent of integration in three manners: the secular interpretation through the usage of the architectural typology of the far-west Athenian urban world, the drawing in relation to the city-plan traces of the adjacent city blocks and finally the supportive function as a provider of public welfare, of humanitarian and educational nature that will connect not only to the socially vulnerable group of Muslims but also the majority of the skeptical native community.
